POINTS OF INTEREST
Every year, it seems, this amusement park, at the eastern end of Île Ste-Hélène, adds some new and monstrous way to scare the living daylights (and perhaps your lunch as well) out of you. The most recent addition is the Maison Rouge, a haunted house and "labyrinth of terror." Also recently added was DEMON, an extreme ride that will—at high speed (of course)—twist you, twirl you, and turn you upside down, then douse you with water jets. The park also aims to terrify you with such stomach-turning champions as the Endor, the Goliath, the Vampire, Monstre, and Vol Ultime. For the less daring, there are Ferris wheels, boat rides, and kiddie rides. The popular International Fireworks Competition is held here on Saturday and Wednesday in late June and July.
